The IMF is committed to supporting implementation of the 2030 development agenda. The IMF’s primary contribution to global development is to deliver on its mandate to help maintain macroeconomic and financial stability at both the global and national levels. The IMF also supports the development agenda through targeted support for national policies—via policy advice and support for capacity development (CD) in areas where it has specialist expertise.
In 2015, the IMF made a series of commitments to intensify its support for the 2030 development agenda (IMF, 2015a, 2015b, 2015c, 2015d). This paper takes stock of the progress made in implementing these commitments and other relevant post-2015 initiatives, while drawing some general lessons from the experience.
